    Just a few shots of my sedan after we got the suspenison dismantled. Next step clean up and some black paint, then on with the dropped spindles. dropped leafs, and tubular Narrowed a arms. Also some pics of the wheels. OG 56 15's for the front and 7" wide 56 centers(Thanks to Wheelkid) on the rear. I know the tires will be smoothed of all lettering soon. Later

    That, Sir, is a very fine '57. Keep us posted (as opposed to hard-topped):D

    The rear is out of the Mailbus that used the trailing arm setup, not sure of the year. As far as wheels the last set I had on there was a 17x8 with 4.75 " backspacing.
    The narrowed arms are because of a. being lowered I wanted to bring the tire in from the fender.
    b. With the disk brake kit the wheel is moved out over an inch compared to stock, so that even with the narrowed arm I am only moving the wheel in about 5/8th's of an inch.
